Restaurant Report Card: Champion’s
“The guy who lived here, Mr. Champion, he donated the land to the railroad to come through here with the condition that they name the town after his daughter Roberta,” said Greer.
You’ll get your food, but you’ll also get a dose of Roberta’s history.
“You can go through the rooms, you can think about how this was a bedroom, this was a dining room,” said Greer.
But first, here’s a restaurant that needs to step it up this week.
JL’s Barbecue on Presidential Parkway in Macon scored a 67.
It had expired sour cream in the walk in cooler, the hamburgers weren’t cooked hot enough, and an employee rinsed his gloves in the hand sink.
Other scores this week:
Adriana’s Cafe on 3rd Street – 80
China Wok on Cotton Avenue – 82
Diary Queen Orange Julius on Eisenhower Parkway – 86
Fish house II on Napier Avenue – 93
Guitarras Mexican Grill on Tom Hill Sr. Boulevard – 83
Hong Kong Express on Pio Nono – 78
K Family Deli on Eisenhower – 93
Main Street Pizza on Second Street – 90
Moon’s Wing’s and Deli on Hartley Bridge Road – 97
Sakkio Japan on Eisenhower – 90
Texas Cattle Company on Houston Road – 90
Good scores this week.
Champion’s is home cooking because it’s cooked in a house.
“There’s a whole kitchen, bedroom, bathroom everything,” said Greer. “Yeah, it’s literally home-y I know.”
That transfers into the food.
“There’s so much quality in everything I mean really, you taste it,” said Greer.
This is probably how Mr. Champion would’ve wanted his food, good and hot. Of course, you’ve gotta keep the house clean.
“We pay close attention to the details and a big part of it is putting ourselves in the shoes of the customers, we wouldn’t do anything that we wouldn’t be okay another restaurant employee doing and serving for us,” said Greer.
Champion’s is the champ this week.
They’re making the grade.
